romney and paul ryan. this take on the romney ryan ticket. >> i like paul ryan. you were critical of this one point. when he said he was going to mix medicare you say he should have waited until after the election. >> i did suggest it. i think it would have been more appropriate to have waited but i like the energy he brings. i like a lot of things he is saying. he's smart, truly understands what is going on with the budgets and everything else. i think he is strongly in favor -- i know for a fact he is going to save medicare he is going to sahe other side is goio destroy it. knott not with big deductions medicare cannot exist with the other side in office: it will explode. $716 billion -- >> it was taken out of medicare. >> here's what i think you would do if you were debating president obama. i believe he is arrogant. i don't think he has ever taken a punch in his life. the biggest deal you and i talked about this before is tony rest tone the convicted felon had the biggest deal he did before he became president. >> if romney and ryan go into these debates and punch, i don't th

that president obama gave david letterman than anything in paul ryan's speech which as we saw led to the this explosion of fact-checking. bill: don't all politicians kind of take the truth and bend it a little bit, stretch it out for their own advantage? >> yes. that is an understatement. they do it all the time. everybody on all sides does it. and i think, you know, to a certain extent the romney campaign has to be a little careful not caught up in just being fact checkers, but at the same time calling the president out on his excesses. when he is say things about governor romney that aren't true. bill: rove takes it a step further because he writes about serial dishonesty. that is the phrase he uses in his piece. how do you think romney has responded to date? >> i think they have done a pretty good job. i think the campaign found that delicate balance calling president on things he said that might be exaggerating or misleading governor romney's record but not obsessing about it. i think particularly in the upcoming debates, governor romney himself, it is important that he call t
one of the reasons we're having that mess is mitt romney's friend? paul ryan accidentally supports the nfl referees union. watch. >> it is time to get the real refs. it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right it's time to get out. >> really good spoken for the romney ryan ticket, as well. >> just when you thought republicans couldn't get more offensive, here comes scott brown in massachusetts. an energizing fruit or relaxing mint flavor. new 5 rpm gum. stimulate your senses.

to the message he had all along instead of trying to pick paul ryan and we are going to have a discussion about the issues. >> marco rubio, you get a sen with paul ryan, that is not giving him a new air of voters coming in. they had bar arebarack obama. >> the book is fascinating. there are two categories. when weather forecasters and gamblers. they aren't giving you an exact answer. you know that sometimes your opponent will catch that card and 52 will make them a miracle and beat yours. and your prediction is storm clouds. the met for is not far off. it is about a one in ten chance and if this polls look like this we are looking at a one in ten chance of a real october surprise. he has a window now but the thing is you lose time and if you want to switch to a sports analogy. if obama leads by a touchdown doesn't mean very much. but we are in the 4th quarter and romney may be giving obama something again. nothing impossible about it but you need to catch a couple of breaks. the one good thing, many predictions fail. good to see you. coming up. celebrity power success and the importance of help
paul ryan calls mitt romney something more dignified than "stench." both presidential candidates promise they will not increase taxes on the poor and middle class but will make a dent in the deficit. this evening we look at romney's plan which has been called mathematically by one group and the president and his campaign have been all over it. chief national correspondent jim angle gets out his calculator tonight. >> mitt romney's budget plan will hurt the middle class. raising taxes on the average family by up to $2,000. getting a tax break, $250,000 to multimillionaires. >> one might think from this obama ad governor romney is specifically proposing to raise middle class taxes by $2,000. but that's not true. in fact, he penaled just the opposite prompting one romney advisor to blast the notion. >> that is the biggest political lie i have ever seen in my academic career. it's not romney's plan to do that. there is nothing to suggest he would do that. pure fiction. >> $1.2 trillion in tax deductions are claimed every year. everything from home mortgage interest to hundreds of mil
is paul ryan and? >> invisible they're not focused on what the americans a people want to hear about. with jobs, economic growth and a fast forward for the country to strengthen our position as a nation. lou: that is selling and. but the president with a 13% we are going back to the heart of the t recession over 3.5 years and the economy growing 1.3%, 20 million unemployed i hear it is the economy stupid. the people are not responding to a horrible economy, a terrible pe situation and no plan to go forward. >> not attack ads notvery day i criticism they want to know not the specifics. >> we no hope and change was the fancy slogan. but that turned out not to be the case. they just beat up a president how much can you like a man who was not delivering?vering? at the end of the day he is a failed leader. ba i will cut taxes but i toepeo don't know how much. i will repeal but i have to wait.is presi oba but mathat is the mitt romney slogan.romney instead of saying here is my plan, i have been running six years. lou: if that is true the voters want specificity. why would they not what pe
is the right place to do it. after the paul ryan speech, you have the obama campaign referring to the lies in paul ryan's speech and that's echoed by president obama's allies in the media. when you don't have the romney campaign's response robustly. for example, president obama has been running ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of a assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. also puts harvey rosen, you can also generate enough growth to avoid a middle class tax increase. there are a loft credible folks saying something else. it's a fact he's going to raise middle class tax. >> the obama campaign, david plouffe is a chris christie of the campaign saying their campaign is built on a tripod of lies and the president has said sometimes they just make things up. >> last i checked, isn't this called politics? you have lying all the time in politics. it is our responsibility to call folks out on it. on my tv 1 show, i have a
of the financial crisis that began under the bush administration, paul ryan seized on the remarks as an admission of failure. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how can they justify raising taxes on the middle class? the middle-class has been buried last four years. how, in lord's name, can they justify raising taxes? >> vice-president biden today said that the middle-class over the last of we or years has been buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging, which means we have to collect mitt romney as president of the united states. >> meanwhile, paul ryan has appeared in videos online. in a speech delivered last november, he said 30% of americans want to live off the government. today, 70% of americans get more benefit from the federal government and a payback in taxes. you could argue we are already passed a tipping point. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows we are a center-right country. 70% of americans won the american dream. only 30% want the welfare state. what that tells us is, at least half of those people currently in that category are
>> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and, would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen is credited with making the iowa gops 1 millionth voter call this cycle. >> issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she's doing her part now as republicans play early voting catch. >> you know, we're working hard here, we're rolling up our sleeves and putting our boots on and we're going at it. so, we still have time. >> reporter: john king, cnn, iowa city, iowa. >>> and lots more ahead as "cnn newsroom" continues with fredricka whitfield. >> i can't believe it's under 40 days under election day. it went by like this, after all. >> i'm sure a lot of people are happy a about this. >> it's true, too. we'll elaborate on that later, too. good to see you, appreciate it. >>> for now, we'll begin with new information on an investigation into a decade's old mystery, the disappearance of former teamster's boss jimmy hoffa. crews digging under a michigan shed for his possible remains say they did not find any bones, but
congressman paul ryan frustrated >> did you guys watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a break. it is time to get the real refs. you know what? it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it's time to get out. >> gretchen: league officials did say the seahawks wide receiver should have been called for offensive pass interference before the catch. >> brian: he pushed off. >> gretchen: mitt romney is campaigning in the state of ohio. he'll get a boost from jack nicholas at a reallily. -- rally. he's hoping to get a bounce from president olympic? >> if there is one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. [ laughter ] >> gretchen: romney speak yesterday at clinton's annual global conference. what he's alluding to is that over the last six months or so, bill clinton disagreed with president obama's main policies on the economy and taxes, and that could be seen as a help to mr. romney. >> brian: mitt romney is apparent and this is the story about being a favorite. do
as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class families in america benefit more from any limit of deductions. >> well, a limit of deductions actually would hurt the wealthy to the extent that we're talking about a deduction that the wealthy take in very, very large amounts. a limit on those deductions makes some sense in terms of a progressive tax system. >> what do you think the plan for the president will be tonight? terms of tax reform, mr. reich? >> the president has said that he wants the so-called buffett rule that is a minimum tax particularly in regard t
the person you are going to debate. ohio senator rob portman will play the president obama. and paul ryan will practice and the one who plays joe biden will be gary doocy. >> steve: they . that is incredible. was his voice goinger or slower . clever. >> brian: bill watches with a tank top and underwear . >> gretchen: that is i wonder if he watched that on the show. >> gretchen: i guarantee you if right now. >> brian: put a robe on. don't just run down. bomb shell new report suggest that the white house new within 24 hours that the deadly terrorist attack on the consulate. yet the president has yet to say so. peter doocy in washington with more. >> you are right. according to secretary of state hilary clinton al-qaida was behind the raid on the consulate in benghazi not only is al-qaida carrying out acts of terror but sabtage libya's effort to build a post gaddafi government. >> they are working with violent extremist to undermine in. as we saw in benghazi. >> president obama still hasn't called what happened in libya a terrorist attack and that outraged senators graham we recognize al-qai

[ cuckoo clock chimes ] in the budget plan. >> it is too complicated. you wouldn't understand. >> stephanie: really? okay. all right. here he is. >> haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> i i i i i -- >> when fox news flusters the republican wow. you know you're in trouble. >> stephanie: you're running to be leader of the free world. >> he's the budget munster. you're right. >> stephanie: we're too stupid. i would have been like i have nothing -- >> you wouldn't understand. >> stephanie: i got nothing but time. we just blew up the c and the d block. go! >> you and your c and d block. >> stephanie: fancy tv talk. >> sure. that's what th
for eliminating tax deductions. in a fox business exclusive, romney running mate paul ryan says that tax plan would mean a president romney would pay more in taxes. >> here's how it works, higher income people can use lots of tax shelters to shelter some of their income from taxation. more of their income is subject to taxation, that allows to us lower tax rates for everybody. rich: some families and businesses will pay more because there would be fewer deductions. others would pay less with lower tax rates. in theory it is all supposed to balance out. among the more popular tax deductions and exemptions for the cost of workers health plans interest on home mortgages, retirement plans, and giving to charity, these are the more popular, and there are many more, and the romney campaign will not say which ones. back to you. dagen: if some people are going to pay more taxes, you are going to raise the taxes on those people? rich: you are not going to raise their tax rates but raise their effective tax rates. if you have a a big generous tax deduction that goes away to pay this thing, you personal
was able to explain that in a way that paul ryan or, you know, a lot of other conservatives could have explained it in two or three seconds. yes, i did that in massachusetts, but let me tell you something. what works in massachusetts doesn't work in michigan, doesn't work in mississippi, doesn't work in minnesota. we've got 50 different states, and let's have experimentation. let's have competition. let's have legislative laboratories and see what suits each state's residents the best. he missed that. he could have explained that away in january in iowa and could have been talking about this bill for the past eight, nine months in an excited, positive way. another thing, steve ratner, i want to go to you on this specifically because you talked -- yesterday we talked to governor ed rendell who said that he was so impressed with mitt romney when he went up to massachusetts. and mitt romney was explaining to him all the details of this health care plan and all the great things that it did for the residents, for the people of massachusetts. and he sat there going man, this guy is so impres
has won the white house without ohio. with that in mind, romney and running mate paul ryan began a bus tour through ohio this afternoon. >> sreenivasan: the u.s. supreme court upheld west virginia's congressional redistricting plan today. critics of the redistricting had argued that the populations within newly drawn districts were too far out of balance, but the supreme court reversed a lower court ruling and said the state legislatures was correct in trying to keep counties intact, keep incumbents from facing each other, and minimize shifts in population. the lower court may still consider challenges to the plan under the state constitution. in economic news, a key index showed home prices rose again in july-- another sign the housing market is on the road to recovery. and a separate index had consumer confidence rising in september. but it wasn't enough to help wall street, amid new worries about spain's debt troubles. the dow jones industrial average lost 101 points to close at 13,457. the nasdaq fell 43 points to close above 3117. the national football league faced an explosion of
-election for the president, if we postulate that hypothetical, then they say, well, the only problem was paul ryan should have been first on the ticket, should have been more conservative, and you know that argument. i think if it's a blowout and these are all ifs, you have a goldwater-type reassessment, then, yes, a, you have a desire to manufacture, and, b, you have new people in the party like a ted cruz that the president can go out and talk to and say let's be reasonable. you're a tea party guy, but let's do something that people like your parents can have a path to citizenship and -- >> that's a good idea. i'm for that. thank you, gentlemen. andrew sullivan, amazing piece. i will read it several times. >> thank you. >> ari melber, thank you. >>> up next, it took a wild ending to last night's packers/seahawks game to get wisconsin governor scott walker to finally side with union workers. that's next in the "sideshow." yeah, i'm looking to save, but i'm not sure which policy is right for me. you should try our coverage checker. it helps you see if you have too much coverage or not enough, making it e
romney, paul ryan, we're all pro union all of a sudden. >> everybody's in favor of the union. >> everybody's in favor of the union. >> don't you think that roger goodell and the owners and everyone else at this point, you know, have to -- have to cave in and do something? >> sure. >> about the replacement refs before we go through another weekend like that? >> i don't know if they can get them in even if they negotiated a settlement today. i don't know if the regular nfl refs could get back for this weekend. i think they've got to make a deal and they can get some concessions i'm sure from the union but they've got to make a deal quickly and roger goodell is really in the hot seat and this is a time when he has to lead the owners, not follow the owners. >> this is a game that's already been in some fire for injuries to players, for roughness, things like that. they don't need another problem. they better settle. >> i agree with vin. >> talking to the players rep in a moment coming up. and thanks to both of you and if you have nothing to do this weekend we may put you on the f
't like paul ryan. so you look at all the recent polls, you have four of them. you have reuters, gallup, bloomberg and fox show the president leading. which doesn't mitt romney embrace these polls and acknowledge them? say, this is how it is right now. we're going to change them? >> i think internally they probably are doing a lot of that and trying to figure out how they can shift the narrative, but i think that article is exactly right. yes, mitt romney has been a poor candidate. yes, his comments about the 47% have been truly devastating to this race. i think his problems go way back. they do go to a self-delusion the gop has about the president. that he's awful and a toaster oven could beat him in an election. it's not true. the american people like the president. mitt romney was forced to move so far to the right in the gop primary it's hard to come back to a sensible, mainstream view and his embrace of paul ryan on the ticket just made that that much harder. >> if you're in the wilderness for years and you're not winning and we have 8% unemployment and we should win this thing and
state of paul ryan, who is also on the republican ticket. the gamble that the republicans made was that he would give them a bump here in the upper midwest, and that has not happened. it's not because paul ryan fails to connect with people or people don't know who mitt romney is. i think we are witnessing a full-scale swing in the pendulum. here in wisconsin scott walker survived the recall effort, but you have tammy baldwin pulling ahead of tommy thompson, a double-digit swing from where he was. she used to be trailing after the democratic convention. president obama is pulling ahead in the upper midwest. i think this may be less about -- this is only mitt romney, and mitt has to be mitt and it's all about mitt. this runs deeper than that. this is a sort of recentering of the american electorate we're witnessing. >> let's go back to the political article. it isn't the chair or the ho-hum convention or the looked video or stewart stevens or the improving economy or media bias or the message or mormonism. it's mitt. is it that simple? is the problem at the end of the day that it
chose paul ryan he didn't fill out his resume. he chose not to go in that direction. >> foreign policy. >> i do agree, what bebe said was the key thing which is that we've got several months until next spring. and so that means if there is ever going to be a military attack it will not be pre-election t won't be any time soon. so that lowers the temperature on that issue. whether the administration has a plausible strategy, they have a good principles which is that we cannot tolerate contain, we can't contain a nuclear iran. they will not get the bomb. but how we get there, the israelis have been frustrated, why are they so vague, why won't they lay out a strategy. that is a concern but more policy concern than a political one. >> woodruff: very different subject but i have to ask you. the nfl lockout of the pro football officials, they resolved it all after that monday night game, mark, which shall we say was controversial. what lessons to be learned from this whole experience. >> myopia and greed of nfl owners is beyond comprehension. i mean these are people who have a $10 billion en
's challenging. one thing to watch also is in the interview show with paul ryan, paul ryan was asked how does your budget plan add up? he says i'm not really sure i have time to explain that right now. you better believe they will press romney about it on wednesday. that's the kind of thing they have to avoid. >> karen, as alice brought up, foreign policy. that being a hot topic issue in the headlines and also for very good reason. americans want to know what president obama's foreign policy is going for. because of situations that seem to be forever in the lexicon of our conversation. certainly in afghanistan with what we've seen happening there. so karen, with that being said, can the president sharpen what he wants to say knowing that's going to be a vulnerable spot for him. mitt romney wants to prove that americans go through strength. and president obama may not have that philosophy. >> peace through strength is a nice slogan, but the president has unfortunately the burden of knowing the facts on the ground and knowing what is possible and what is not possible. foreign policy is complica
. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exemptions. >> mitt romney and i based on our experience think the best way to do this is to show the framework, show the outlines of these plans and then to work with congress to do this. >> that's something congress and i will have to work out together. >> the devil's in the details, though. what are we ta
to how he will fix the economy. use of paul ryan over the weekend talking about -- you saw paul ryan over the weekend talking about how he does not have time to explain the numbers in his budget. people want that explanation and are creeping back from the governor. guest: given the constraints of the debate format, they will not give chapter and verse from the town and its parent -- from the candidates. this is more important for mitt romney. he benefits as a challenger from standing on the same stage as the incumbent president of the united states, but there is a greater burden to convince the wavering voters, the 12 or 14 people that i've not made up their minds in this election. host: post-debate spin, howard kurtz, how important is that, and how social media plays a more important role? guest: the post-debate spin, i think it is critical, as people watched the debate, but they can make up their own mind, but that is an hour and half. what you get for the next several days or a week are the clips that are replayed, the chair by the commentators. you mentioned the al gore eye- rolling t
the bush part, he hasn't wanted to explain them too much. in fact, paul ryan, his running mate says, the math is just too hard. but it really isn't. and i would imagine the obama administration, or obama's going to go through tonight, you really only need to know two numbers about romney's tax plan, one is $480 billion. that's the cost of it in 2015, just to pick one year. and the other is $251 billion. that's the amount that will go to very wealthy families. now, mitt romney's promise, his tax plan won't cost a dime on the deficit. so he somehow needs to get $480 billion out of the tax code by closing breaks and loopholes, seems like the mortgage interest deduction, and also that it won't be a tax cut on the rich. so about $250 billion of it needs to come from tax breaks for the rich. the problem for him is that independent analysts have looked at and basically said, when you take into account the tax breaks he's promised he won't touch, like the capital gains tax break, it's basically impossible to make the numbers worse. there's no way to get that many tax breaks from the rich, b
, but they don't seem to be taking-- seniors don't seem to be taking very well what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do about it. >> well, the first-- the first bit of good news is that mitt romney and paul ryan are not going to change medicare for those seniors. they're going to change medicare for folks like me, who just turned 50, and younger, who are going to need to know that if you want to have any semblance of medicare, you're going to have to make some changes to it. here's the dirty little secret, bob-- the president of the united states knows that, too, but he's not talkin talking abo. he's not being honest with the american people about it. in the end, i think the american people, if we lay out our vision well, will reward us for tell truth. and the president right now is avoiding the truth the way he's avoided so many hard truths over the last four years. >> schieffer: governor, if mitt romney does not win, are you going to run for president in 2016? >> mitt romney's gonna win, so it's a question that-- know, i don't need to address. i hope in 2016 to be work hard for mitt romney
that mitt romney deserves a chance with met right bridge -- with paul ryan. they have a solid plan to turn this country around, to save social security, not cutting it, like all the old people are being indoctrinated with. one party is pro-life. one party is pro-choice. if we want four more years of these excuses of blaming bush, of blaming anything you can but still keeping people stagnant without rewarding small businesses -- small businesses create 74% of the jobs in this country. obama wants to tax them. does that make sense to anyone? and we are paying $800 million on interest alone? we cannot sustain this. we need a change. especially you catholics, if you are voting for mr. obama, you may as well be complicity in the abortions taking place, because there are far too many and we need to solve these social and financial issues with a strong person who will defend our country, not make excuses that it is our fault for all of the things going on in the world. host: we will do this for about 25 more minutes, getting your thoughts. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama s

romney's runningmate paul ryan which brings us to this week's big question. was mitt romney's choice of ryan mass take? >> yes. -- a mistake? >> yes. >> i don't think so because it brought renewed focus and attention on the economy and debt which may have helped him in some camps. >> good for the future of the party, not so helpful necessarily this time around. even though he's a very cale capable politician. i think rob portman in ohio becomes a question. he could have helped in ohio, perhaps you could argue that and ohio is really something romney needs. >> he forced the seniors to think about what they like about medicare and the welfare state and they decided they liked it. and that's -- chris: that's well said. i hear doctors, the people don't -- they get very nervous when you talk about changing their insurance. >> even if you say it only applies to people under 55. >> the pick hurt him in florida and didn't help in ohio and he's got to win those states to be president. chris: i think ryan hurts. thanks for a great round table. congratulations to hbo and to you for those four e
to lead a group calling itself the agenda progress paul ryan but according to a trust was the killer ignore the fact the plan would not affect people currently on medicare or even the people 55 to 65 who joined the program in the next ten years to be as opposed to the source on the street the american doctors for truth says president obama is rationing health care voting to cut the budget. >> president obama is again throwing seniors off the cliff when they voted to cut the budget by $575 billion. >> another trusted source said this piece of information that the reduction in the future growth of spending over ten years, not in the current budget. that is one they put together the agenda project, the american doctors for truth, the true anonymous groups to. is it obama, is of ryan? not on your life. these were killed by deception and a cliff. >> the next condition the next slide, please come is what participants saw. this was taken from the fact checker where we combine the two stories to kind of come alone with a stand alone. these are the final conditions that controlled conditions
before you get into office. on the other side we all know paul ryan can do the math and he can spend the whole 90 minutes talking about -- >> of course paul ryan isn't the candidate for president. >> paul ryan will get his chance. >> if you endorsed budget, please explain to us how that works. >> well, at least there's a budget. >> he was for and then against it. >> so how should romney answer? our debate all this week has been your argument is he should avoid substance at all costs. so how should romney answer her question then? >> the good news is that the rules don't allow him to speak more than a few seconds. >> actually, two minutes i think. >> so move on to the next issue, the next issue. we're looking for details. you are not going to get details tonight. >> let's be clear, there's 15-minute segments. they have two minutes to respond to the question and then jim lehrer's going to narrate the back and forth. there should be enough time. >> one thing i want to say though is that this is going to be for a bunch of young americans their first chance to vote. a lot of the young ame
. whoever is budget director, paul ryan as vice president, and whoever is the treasury secretary, i would guess twice a day at the white house meeting with senior white house staff. then there would be the rest of the obama administration were i would hope that would be -- a whole bunch of other things could be done in departments that need to be improved from a policy point of view. my sense is that the romney people are very focused on that first six-nine months. if i were advising romney, i would say put them all at the white house, omb, and treasury at the beginning. they need the best, most experienced people to really make those decisions early and to work with congress. i would get a couple people who have served our are very familiar with congress. obviously cannot just dictate to congress. they will need to make that step happen very fast. a very strong white house chief of staff and budget director. it was impressive what they did. being able to get that stuff through, we look at history in retrospect, the fact that reagan did it was pretty startling. >> governor romney is also

to mitt romney. the governor has the economic stats on his side. but it's clear that he and paul ryan still have not convinced the casual voter that they can improve the economy. mr. romney's moment will come next wednesday in denver when he confronts mr. obama in the first debate. the governor it's the only debate. he must win or he will not recover. he has to show that he cares about the folks and that his expertise can return the nation to prosperity while more of barack obama would be a disaster. quite a challenge for romney. the media is heavily rooting for his opponent. the folks are generally fair and they will be watching. whether it's lifetime or after the fact on the net and the folks will make up their own minds. so the governor does chance as the drama builds. and that's the memo. next on the run down, lou dobbs will respond. also ahead this evening a devastating "saturday night live" impression of the president. >> remember that movie, the sixth sense?

, the majority leader, calls people like paul ryan, who is now running for vice president. .. >> if you keep doing this, you are going to risk your speakership. the president said when i talked to him, interestingly enough, he said in fixing -- he realizes the magnitude of all of this, as does speaker boehner, key democrats, key republicans realize what it is. and the president literally said to me, i would willingly lose an election if i could solve these problems. it is that serious. tim geithner, the treasury secretary, in the book is quoted thousands of words telling the president, you have got to do something about this problem. we have to fix it. you literally, it's not that we're going to close down the government, we will close down the american economy and, in turn, the global economy. if they do not solve the issue of this runaway spending, get some way to stop borrowing in excess, he tells the president of the united states if we default on this, on our obligations and our ious, we will trigger a depression worse than the 1930s. anybody here remember the 19 1930s depression? you p
, paul ryan, says the white house response is part of a bigger problem. >> their response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy. the problem is, it is part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unravelling before our eyes on tv. >>shepard: officials reportedly say the united states may have put too much faith in newly trained libyan security guards. catherine is live from washington, dc, with the story. what do we know of the libyan security guards? >>reporter: intelligence sources tell fox that the libyan security forces "melted away when the attack happened" and there is "confirmation the security for the consulate, some elements, were acting in concert with the terrorists." a short time ago, as to the status of the consulate, the state department is sending all questions to the f.b.i. >> all of the officials having to do with the staws of the scene in benghazi, what it was, what it is, they a

if he was running for election or re-election. >> paul ryan talked about it. he says as conservatives, we are used to media bias. but the desperation of the mainstream media to re-elect barack obama has reached levels we have not seen before. i worry very much that the kind of covering up of hugely important issues, an american ambassador killed in a terror attack that the administration covered up, after it ignored that the threats that he was reporting back to washington. that's very, very serious. when have you a media that won't cover these stories, it begins to really damage, i think, the functioning of our democracy. they have an important role to play and they have abdicalletted responsibility because they have a tingle up their leg over barack obama. >> sean: i think they are the willing accomplices. i think that obama is laughing his ass off because he knows he can manipulate them and get them to say anything he wants. it's fascinating. >> and dangerous. >> sean: liz cheney, thank you. >> thank you. >> sean: coming up next, now that she is not on the campaign trail, calista g
